I notice that NAVMAN has released the 4470 for Palm OS with updated UK maps "based on summer 2004 map data" and SmartST 3 that allows the user to create their own POIs. Two questions: 1) Is the software/maps available as an upgrade for users of 4460 SmartSt2? 2) Will this version run on the Tungsten T5?

Found my own answers to this since I posted it... Have just talked to NAVMAN UK and they basically took the line that it was tough luck that I bought the 4460 when I did. They do not plan to issue upgraded maps for the 4460, nor do they expect to do anything to make the 4460 run on a Tungsten T5. The retailer from whom I bought the 4460 should apparently have told me that the 4470 was on the horizon, and the out of date UK maps were accurate two years ago - what more do you want, and it is Palm's fault for bringing out the T5 without checking that it would run the 4460. A very helpful conversation with NAVMAN UK (01293 780500). I don't think I'll be buying any more of their products.
Ghastly shower aren't they? Did they suggest one could buy SmartST v3 software only? Anyone tried Mapopolis yet? http://www.mapopolis.com/subscriptions.jsp?s=1106681129218893&p=&q=0 $124 or so. And they look like nice guys...

Mapopolis works on the T5 - and it is happy to use the gps receiver that came with my 4460. Mapopolis is slightly quirky in the way it works but they have a very good support forum where they respond very quickly with fixes and suggestions that actually work! NAVMAN has promised an upgraded T5 compatible version sometime in March/April this year.
